Fellow Readers,

This year, same as well as last year, we received hundreds of e-mails from all of you asking about the very same thing: “Which fat burner should I choose to avoid wasting money?”

Granted, fat burners can greatly increase your fat loss by enhancing metabolism, maintaining healthy appetite, and minimizing food cravings.

However, many of you keep coming across various sorts of “magic pills” and the only “magic” thing about them is how mysteriously your money seems to be disappearing straight from your pocket and into the vain. As a result, instead of stubborn belly fat you were burning mostly piles of cash.

Why would you make such bad choices?

The most probable cause for all this is falsified ingredients list. Put simply, the manufacturer made some promises as regards to what’s inside his products, whereas in reality all these assurances turned out to be slightly off.

And since your average Joe has no way of performing laboratory tests on his fat loss pills, as consumer you can’t really prove anything.

Therefore, just like a year before, in 2017 again we’ve come to provide assistance and some valuable advice.

Every single fat burner and thermogenic substance you’re going to find below was chosen both by us and – most importantly – by you as the most effective and satisfying products on the market in 2017.

Also, there’s no “monkey business” around here since all these products undergo a series of clinical tests and laboratory checks which makes them safe and consistent choice for every consumer out there.


Also, make no mistake here – the true creators of this list are you – our real life ordinary Readers, both supporters and opponents of fat burners.

The group which took part in this test amounted to almost 5 thousand people from all over the Europe, using products for 60 days straight.

So without further ado let’s begin with your list of top fat burners for women in 2017.


Our criteria consisted of 3 categories (using the 1-5 school grading):

  1. POWER – first impressions on the intensity of a fat burner. Increased heart rate, more energy, motivation boost and others.
  2. EFFECTS – real tangible results from using a fat burner, i.e. fat loss.
  3. HEALTH & LONG TERM RESULTS – everything and healthy and unhealthy about using a fat burner: side effects, safety of ingredients as well as yo-yo effect/rebounce.


Category I. POWER

Hydroxycut Elite Shaper Cut Hi-Tech Lipodrene Fat Burner Gold Piperyne Forte
Metabolic boost 3 5 3 2 3
Increased thermogenesis 5 4 3 5 2
Mood and motivation 4 5 4 3 4
Rate of absorbtion 4 4 3 3 2
Score 16 18 13 13 11

As you can see from the above table our respondents quite unanimously noticed that a relatively new fat burner going under the name of Shaper Cut provides exceptionally positive influence on basal metabolic rate, leaving its opponents somewhat behind.

(To all our new readers – your metabolic rate is responsible for the net amount of calories you burn throughout the day, so the faster your metabolism “runs”, the more calories you burn, thus getting rid of fat.)

In particular, our testers reported increased rate of daily caloric burn when using Shaper – they could eat more food than it would appear from their macronutrient counters (ex. My Fitness Pal), while still burning fat.

Increased resting metabolic rate is one of the most searched for quality in every fat burner – the more calories during your weight loss diet you can eat, the more mentally comfortable your journey becomes.

When it comes to Power category Piperyne Forte also received good notes, as our respondents were particularly happy about its mood and motivation boosting capabilities.

In contrast when it comes to Fat Burner Gold  our team didn’t notice any positive changes regarding neither metabolism nor thermogenesis, which was clearly reflected in the score section. The reason for this is probably quite unfortunate choice of ingredients since the competition seems to have done much better within this regard.

What’s even more interesting, our Readers also reported a significant boost of everyday mood and motivation after testing Shaper Cut, which is commonly considered to be one of the most often lacking characteristic of modern fat burners, mostly due to a highly demanding technological process required to achieve such an effect.

When it comes to remaining parameters all five fat burners performed similarly with one exception – Piperyne Forte  apart from receiving good notes for increasing metabolism there was not much more to praise about when it comes to this product. Hopefully, we will see some improvement as the review unfolds.

Hydroxycut Elite , the old hand of fat burners, still remains within the top 3 but the abovementioned Shaper Cut follows hot on its heels, gaining 2 points of lead in the Power category. The competition between the two is going to be very exciting.


Finally, Hi-Tech Lipodrene  and Fat Burner Gold  so far seem to place themselves perfectly in the middle of the race, receiving not excellent nor disappointing notes from most of our respondents. However, choosing the former of the latter can make its case given their relatively attractive pricing, which we’re going to cover later on.


Category II. EFFECTS

  Hydroxycut Elite Shaper Cut Hi-Tech Lipodrene Fat Burner Gold Piperyne Forte
Fat burning 5 4.5 3 4 2
Body recomposition 4 5 4 3 2
Appetite suppresion 5 4 2 2 3
Thyroid sensitivity increase 4 5 2 5 1
Leptin-resistance improvement 4 5 4 2 1
Lipogenesis decrease 4 5 2 3 2
Score 25,5 29 17 19 11

Here comes the time for the part you’ve all been waiting for – effects.

When it comes to fat burning once again Shaper Cut and Hydroxycut Elite come head to head, with a slight advantage of the former.

We actually couldn’t believe that such a fresh product on the market could outrank such an old dog as Hydroxycut  but the data doesn’t lie.

Also, we run it twice to make sure there’s no mistake and apparently we have a new leader when it comes to burning fat in 2017.

And even though the 0.5 point of difference doesn’t make that much of a difference the pricing advantage of Shaper Cut when compared to Hydroxycut  is definitely not something to be sneezed at.

Once again Hi-Tech Lipodrene and Fat Burner Gold  turned out just fine, with slight advantage of the latter, whereas Piperyne Forte turned out to perform below expectations. We still hope it can surprise us in a positive way soon enough.

In terms of appetite suppression Hydroxycut Elite  turned out to perform better than Shaper Cut, however the latter scored highest notes within the body recomposition, thyroid sensitivity and leptin resistance improvement.

It seems than that Shaper Cut was designed to have a greater impact on our hormonal system which is considered to be responsible for most of our weight gains. Most recent studies have shown that it is indeed a matter of insulin, leptin and thyroid hormones (T3 and T4 mostly) that we become fat in the first place so it makes somewhat of a sense to target these areas with your product.

However, the question remains whether such an approach pays out in the long run, i.e. does it make any difference whether your fat burner fixes your hormones or not.


So far, even though Hydroxycut slightly outperformed Shaper Cut when it comes to fat loss, the latter received higher notes from our respondents on other important factors (body recomposition, thyroid sensitivity, leptin resistance improvement and lipogenesis) allowing it to once again secure a slight advantage in the race.



  Hydroxycut Elite Shaper Cut Hi-Tech Lipodrene Fat Burner Gold Piperyne Forte
Lab confirmed effectiveness 5 5 5 5 5
Safety of ingredients 5 5 5 5 5
Internal organs overload 4 5 3 3 4
Resting pulse increase 5 5 5 3 5
Long-term results 4 5 3 4 3
Sum 23 26 21 20 22

When it comes to safety of use all 5 fat burners are up there in our 5-point scale.

No wonder, all the ingredients mixed into each single product consists of previously tested substances which have been proven to work over the years.

The internal organs overload is a section judged mostly on subjective observations and blood tests performed on our respondents at the end of our 60 day tests.

When it comes to Hi-Tech Lipodrene  and Fat Burner Gold  about 30% of our Readers reported occasional stomach disorders and very mild pain around this area which is why their score was noticeably lowered.

When it comes to both Shaper Cut and Hydroxycut Elite  our testers reported none of the above, however blood work indicated increased amounts of ALAT, ALT and AspAT enzymes after a 60-day use of the latter, indicating that Hydroxycut  may have a negative impact on your liver, since these enzymes are responsible for liver cells regeneration.

The same issue was reported with Piperyne Forte  which, in return, performed quite nicely within other parameters of the Health category.

Also, in terms of resting pulse increase which commonly occurs along with excessive sweating all 5 of our fat burners did very well, with a slight exception of Fat Burner Gold  – some of our respondents noticed approximately a 15% increase of resting pulse rate for about 1- 2 hours after taking their morning dosage of this supplement.


Now, it’s the high time we reported to you the results of the last important parameter – long term results of tested fat burners.

And, once again, our best performing supplements turned out to be Shaper Cut. Our respondents’ measurements indicate that the yo-yo effect they experienced within 3 months since finishing their treatment amounted to approximately 4% of their previously lost body weight which is a very good result compared to Hydroxycut Elite  (15%), Fat Burner Gold (17%), Hi-Tech Lipodrene  (20%) and Piperyne Forte (22%).



  Hydroxycut Elite Shaper Cut Hi-Tech Lipodrene Fat Burner Gold Piperyne Forte
Power 16 18 13 13 11
Effects 25,5 29 17 19 11
Health & Long-term results 23 26 21 20 22
Total 64,5 73 51 52 44

Now, time for some grand final summaries.

As you can see, there is one clear winner – Shaper Cut managed to score a whopping 73 point, leaving its main rival Hydroxycut Elite  behind.

Even though the difference is not huge, in our opinion it’s worth giving this new kid on the block a try, especially if you’re aiming at quick and visible results.

You might be in for a big positive surprise.

Just as we expected while gathering feedback from you Hi-Tech Lipodrene  and Fat Burner Gold placed themselves just in the middle of the competition, receiving almost identical score each.

We can honestly recommend either of these products if you’re a bit tight on budget and burning a lot of fat quickly isn’t your main goal.

They’re a pretty good value for money and even though they didn’t receive such a positive feedback neither Shaper Cut or Hydroxycut Elite , they could potentially be of some use to most of you out there, if only you’re willing to support them with a consistent portion of daily exercise.

Lastly, Piperyne Forte  turned out to be quite a massive disappointment to most of our respondents. Poor fat burning characteristics and below-average fat loss make up for a product we cannot truly advise you to buy, even considering a good scores received in the last category (health & long-term results).

We hope you enjoyed our thorough test of best fat burners available on the market in 2017.
